A very belated shout out to the men’s & women’s goalball teams of Nova Scotia. The teams snagged double-bronze at the 2017 Senior National Goalball Championships on the weekend of April 21st.
Our men lost 5 to 4 in a close back & fourth finale game with Alberta and brough home their 5th National medal in a row.
The women (Nova-Q) beat Alberta 9 to 1 in the final game, earning Nova Scotia’s first ever Nationals medal for women’s goalball.
Special thanks to Nancy Morin, legendary goalball athlete out of Quebec, and to coaches, officials, referees, volunteers, along with everyone who made the tournament possible.
